economy in the world, never ceases to amaze me. i am an adopted child of the u.s., state of california, and reading the secretary of the epa's biography, he oversees 40,000 employees. the only have to do with two issues. housing and transportation. he has 22,000 employees that he needs to look over. a $20 billion budget. i was just noticing his budget is about half of the entire agricultural exports of the country of argentina. that is fascinating. he is a fascinating man, someone that i have been privileged to partner with over the past couple of years on what is a tremendous groundbreaking initiative, the delivery of the second phase of the project. just as the victor is a visionary, i believe dale is also a visionary. many fruit of his vision are likely to mature after he has left office, but his imprint is clear on the san francisco infrastructure. i want to acknowledge that by welcoming him to the podium. please welcome secretary dale bonner.
